Bhutan and Nepal, best known to the world as the last Shangri – la, their rich Himalayan flora and fauna, dazzling white peaks and lush valleys provide stunning beauty and aesthetic grandeur.

Bhutan has gently opened its doors to the visitors who respect the delicate sensitivities of this pristine land and shares the sacred values of its people. Bhutanese architectures in Dzongs, buildings and houses are very striking. Bhutan is an extraordinary place and has many surprises; a visit to the country is a splendid adventure.

Bhutan is only the country where there are no traffic lights. The busiest intersection in Thimpu and you will see  only a policeman directing the flow of the traffic.

To give you the true Himalayan Experience we have combined two popular destinations – Nepal and Bhutan, starting from Kathmandu into the unique adventure to east Himalaya Bhutan. Visit Paro, Punakha valley, Tigers Nest Monastery and Thimpu to experience Bhutan – the last Shangri-la on earth! – an amazing place to be also known as the kingdom in the sky or above the clouds…

Be acquainted with the unparalleled natural beauty and age-old cultures of the two amazing Himalayan nations, one Hindu and the other Buddhist.
